The exhibit featured more than 700 oil and gas related companies exhibiting in 1,114 specs.

Every even-numbered year, the Permian Basin International Oil Show Inc., brings together people from every phase of the petroleum industry. Leaders come to Odessa, Texas, from every corner of the world to learn about the latest technology, the newest equipment, to transact business and renew friendships.

The Permian Basin International Oil Show Inc. not only showcased the latest technology, it also honored the industry’s past. A working cable tool rig operated daily on the show grounds during the three-day show, surrounded by trucks and oilfield equipment from the 1930’s, a key growth period for the industry in the Permian Basin.

Over the years the show has grown not only in size but in importance as well. Having survived the booms and busts, industry slumps and slow-downs, wars and embargoes, the Permian Basin International Oil Show Inc. is still one of the largest Petroleum Expositions in the world today.

The Permian Basin International Oil Show Inc. is a non-profit venture whose sole purpose is educational, designed to serve the oil and gas industry.
